Props Workday - Thank you!
"I would just like to give a quick shout out and a huge thank you to everyone that showed up at our first official pit crew workday! We got tons of stuff done today. Way more than I thought that we would. I just want everyone to know how greatly appreciated your time and energy was in giving to our band program. Our kids will look better because of you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Sincerely: Steven Brazell"
We had 13 volunteers who logged 41.5 person-hours of work on our first of many Pit Crew workdays. They were able to re-plank and paint the pit carts, design and create a prototype of our sideline screen props, and do some general cleanup. Pit Crew is a fun way to get involved if you are not afraid to get your hands dirty. Check out the "More Photos" link above to see photos of our Pit Crew volunteers!
